A simple story can tell an entire story!~~ ME
Pictures tell a 1000 words~IDK :P

I am from the house daddy built,
From the lonesome hill
In the middle of nowhere.

I am from bruises and scraped knees,
From great outdoor adventures
To dollhouses and bicycles.

I am from being competitive with my sisters
From declaring they cheated
And tattling.

I am from stupid dares and lame pranks
From made up games
And corny jokes.

I am from matted hair
From untied shoes
To hammy downs.

I am from dreaming big
From when I believed in everything
When I thought life was magical.

I am from door slamming and screaming
From picking fights to arguing
From saying exactly what I think.

I am from the feeling of disbelief
To sadness, happiness
And everything in between

I am from always having someone to annoy
From having my sisters back
And constantly a good laugh.

This is where I am from.

This is a poem consisted of everything I am from that made me who I am today. I am from a large family my parents had 6 girls and countless amounts of pets! I have lived through it all, from a sisters death to having a new addition to the family even though she is 11 years apart from the youngest daughter! I live in a house completely built by my father on a hill in the middle of nowhere! This poem basically just tells who I am! :) Enjoy!
